Along with the tab, Microsoft's new dual operating system, Windows 8, will also be launched at midnight, and both products will then be available at a series of pop-up stores in the US, which will be opened specifically on the morning of October 26.
Surface will use the new Windows 8 operating system, which the company hopes will help challenge products made by Apple and Google, and allow users to replace their iPads and Windows 7 laptops with Windows 8 tablets, the Telegraph reports.
According to the paper, the latest version of Windows will be the system's biggest revolution in nearly 20 years, whose dual operating system will consist of a mode that looks similar to Windows 7, and a tablet operating system, which sits alongside it.
The price of Surface has yet to be confirmed, but earlier in the year Microsoft claimed the tablets would cost a "competitive" amount, the paper said.
The tablet will also be available in two different sizes, and both will feature 10.6-inch HD displays and a stand so they can be stood upright to watch videos or films, it added.
